Artlink, founder of the beloved Phoenix First Fridays events, is announcing the return of the month-long celebration of Art Detour, which celebrates its 35th year this March.

As Phoenix’s original art walk, Art Detour, which runs from March 1 to March 31, is an all-inclusive celebration of art, creativity and culture that features events and exhibitions throughout Arizona, according to a press release.

Attendees will enjoy a broad spectrum of art forms and integrated themes including the visual, performing and culinary arts, as well as fashion design, and public art.

The event schedule offers art patrons, collectors and art lovers a broader range of ways in which to engage with artists and destinations throughout the state, including ‘Detour Daytrips’ offering destinations throughout Arizona, in partnership with Arizona Commission on the Arts.

A highlight of the month-long celebration is the Art d’Core Gala which is held at Park Central 6 p.m. Saturday, March 11.

The ‘Rays of Light’ theme for the milestone 10th Annual Art d’Core Gala celebrates the energy of the moment and is in recognition of artists, donors, businesses, collectors, advocates and civic leaders who energize a creative culture that significantly contributes to our community and economy.

Tickets are just $125 and are currently on sale for Art D’Core and can be purchased HERE.

Honorary Chair Oscar De las salas is hosting the philanthropic evening that honors former Arizona Speaker of the House Rusty Bowers; Representatives Marcelino Quiñonez; and Justin Wilmeth; Gallery Owner Lisa Sette; and The Carmody Foundation.

“This is a milestone year as Art Detour turns 35 and as we mark the 10th year of the Art d’Core Gala with a distinguished slate of honorees and exhibiting artists,” said Catrina Kahler, president and CEO of Artlink, in a prepared statement.

“Art Detour is expanding its reach to include more of Arizona, and Art d’Core is reaching new heights with an eye-popping exhibition produced by creators of visual, performing, and culinary works. This is the time to experience art at every turn, and bask in the glow of Arizona talent.”

Ms. Kahler and Artlink officials say the night is anything but another rubber chicken charity event and they invite those who contribute to and support the arts — including artists, collectors, philanthropists and community partners — to come together in celebration of the massive growth of Arizona’s arts community in recent years.

Suggested Art D’Core attire is for a ‘progressive, elevated, semi-industrial arts experience’ where shimmering cocktail meets hip & chic.

Tickets are just $125 and are currently on sale for Art D’Core and can be purchased HERE.

In addition, Artlink invites artists, venues, businesses and organizations to register as an Artlink participant HERE.
